The Face of Fashion Week SWIM

Miami Beach Fashion Week SWIM 2014 backstage braids hair punk spikes

Tomorrow I’ll be recapping my crazy weekend at Miami Beach Fashion Week SWIM, but I wanted to first share my favorite beauty trends of the weekend. Though I’m endlessly devoted to the fashion, I always love taking note of the hair and beauty looks taking their turn across the runways, because beauty is definitely one of my favorite things to copycat.

The standout beauty trends:  Big hair tamed with rows of braids and intricate updos or sleek high ponytails and fishtail braids layered with hair extensions, toned down with dewy skin, nude lips, and bold eyes.  Makeup artists used used the soft, cool beige and taupe shades to layer the eyes and highlight the cheeks and then drew on a bold black above and below the eyes for a deep black smokey eye effect.  The beauty look was typically topped off with nude glossy lip.

Though I’m no expert at braiding, I definitely gave the bold eye look a try, using COVERGIRL’s new Flamed Out Collection.  Don’t miss the photo I snapped of my runway-ready look on Instagram.  #FaceOfFashionWeek  The Cover Girl Flamed Out Collection is an eye bundle that includes Flamed Out Mascara, Flamed Out Shadow Pots and Flamed Out Shadow Pencils.

      Definitely inspired me to try crazier braids with my own hair – they looked so cool!
